A few notes on the bidding process:

Click HERE for help with how to sign up or bid.
Like eBay, you can enter a maximum amount you are willing to bid on an item. This is called proxy bidding. To place a max bid - but let the system bid for you, check the ''Bid for me'' check box before placing your bid.
If you would like to place a bid that is higher than the next valid bid, just make sure the Bid For Me! check box is not checked. Your bid will be placed as the full amount immediately.
Some items may have a Buy-It-Now price. If you want to buy the item immediately at the buy it now price, simply check the Buy it now check box and click the Buy It Now button.
In the case of tie bids, the person who entered the bid first wins.
If your max bid is equal to the Buy-It-Now price but you place it as a proxy bid, someone else may still win that item by using the Buy-It-Now feature. If you are willing to pay the Buy-It-Now price, you should do so immediately to keep from losing that item.

Young readers understand the value of a real book!

Hi & LoisParticipate in our reading program for young school children in Peoria.

Studies show that a child's reading skills and school performance improve if there are books in the home. Research cited by the Literacy Council shows that 61% of children living in poverty do not have a single book for children in the home. Getting books in the home is a real need for many of our students in Peoria.

Look. It's My Book!® was founded to augment the work of the Adopt-a-School Program in Peoria, IL District 150. In the 2015-2016 year we will provide a book to each child in kindergarten through fourth grade six times a year. We currently serve all of the fourteen elementary schools. By helping children have access to books at home, we hope to strengthen learning and instill a life-long love of reading. Our many "Thank You" notes from the children indicate that it seems to be working!

Enjoy the video of one of our distributions. "Thank- You" notes follow!
